SABER INTERACTIVE’S WORLD WAR Z REVEALS NEW TOKYO MAP WITH “STORIES IN TOKYO” GAMEPLAY TRAILER
#OutliveTheDead Around the World on PlayStation®4, Xbox One and Windows PC on April 16
MAPLEWOOD, N.J. – March 27, 2019 – Saber Interactive, in partnership with Focus Home Interactive, has unveiled the next map that will be playable in World War Z, the highly anticipated co-op shooter inspired by Paramount Pictures’ blockbuster film. The new “Stories in Tokyo” gameplay trailer travels to Japan, where hordes of zombies will ambush survivors through narrow streets and dense urban jungles, battling players right up to the edge of the sea. The Tokyo episode will feature two missions available at launch, with a bonus mission arriving for free shortly after release.
“We’ve had such a positive response to the content that we decided to expand the core game and make four episodes spanning eleven levels available at launch,” said Matthew Karch, CEO of Saber Interactive.
Powered by Saber’s dynamic Swarm Engine™, World War Z unleashes hundreds of fast-moving, bloodthirsty zombies – able to move and strike as one collective herd as well as break off into individual attackers – at a time on players. Choose from six distinct classes and an arsenal of deadly weapons, explosives, turrets and traps. Outlive the dead through intense four-player co-op campaign missions around the world, including New York, Jerusalem, Moscow and Tokyo, and battle both zombies and real human opponents in competitive, team-based Players vs. Players vs. Zombies (PvPvZ) multiplayer.
World War Z is available to pre-order now on all platforms digitally and at retail at https://wwzgame.com/buy. All pre-orders come with the free Lobo Weapon Pack, featuring three golden weapon skins and the dual-bladed Lobo spade.
World War Z is expected to launch April 16, 2019, on PlayStation®4, Xbox One and Windows PC via the Epic Games store. For more information, visit http://wwzgame.com, and follow the game on Facebook at www.facebook.com/WWZGame, Twitter @WWZTheGame, and Instagram @WWZGame.
